We don't have an streamlined submission policy, but author can contact us via our website. We have a contact form, and a lot of people do, not just authors, also translators. Also, as far as historical literature goes, this is something I'm picking myself. However, I have also met potential authors at conferences or cultural events or readings. In that regard, Corona has been a setback as well. I used to make connections and meet potential authors at the German house of NYU and Columbia and also at the Leo Baeck institute, but they are only now going back to in-person. (NYU has not yet). Since translation of books is a big part of our work, I'm also holding an eye out myself for interesting books, especially in Germany. We have a fairly clear profile: The book should have something to do with Berlin, or at least with similar German cultural topics (we had, for instance, a book on Leipzig). We are looking at all genres. If having submission guidelines on our website is a condition, I can put this on.
